has anyone ever heard about marbles being found in haunted houses, like i've heard if people find them or hear them roll around it means ghosts are present? i'm probably explaining it wrong

I've not heard of marbles being a specific 'sign' of a haunting. There are things called aports, which is when a spirit can manifest solid objects into our plane. I had one happen to me once, when I came home and found a necklace on my pillow. No one had been home all day and it wasn't there when I left and no one in my family had seen it before. It just appeared - an aport. Keep in mind, too, that spirits will try to move objects in order to be noticed if they are trying to communicate. It takes a great deal of energy for this to happen, so you typically hear of small or light-weight items being moved - such as marbles. If there are children in a house, there are usually small toys, such as marbles or jacks and if that house has a spirit who wants to be noticed, those would be likely something a spirit might try to move.

This is interesting. After my grandmother died I would find marbles...here and there in the backyard*not buried mind you, singular ones sitting on top of the ground* In the house, again here and there*mind you ive never owned a marble in my life* and my thoughts are this, if people find coins and other objects thought to be a sign of a loved one coming back to let them know they are there...why not marbles?

Another interesting note is that agate *which you can find in some marbles* is a stone of strength. It was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength in both battle and physically.

Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. However, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone, and enhances longevity.

Agate is a very protective stone. It is especially protective for children, and makes an excellent stone for children's amulets, medicine bags, jewelry, or just to carry around in a pocket. Agates are said to be especially useful for protecting children from falling.

Emotionally, agate gives courage, emotional strength, self-confidence, and dispels fears. It can also lessen feelings of envy by grounding the emotions. In the same way, it assists with acceptance of all things. It can be very beneficial for self-examination as well as examination of the circumstances one finds oneself in. These qualities make agate superior for easing anxiety and stress. Particularly when placed on the Solar Plexus (3rd) Chakra, it can help one to accept one's emotions, thereby helping overcome those emotions that one wants to remove.

Because of the harmonizing qualities of agate, and its emotional energies of removing and releasing resentments and bitterness, it is also considered by many to be an excellent stone for helping to heal and improve relationships.

Agate can cleanse and stabilize the aura by removing and/or transforming negative energy.

As far as relationships go, agate is a stone of marital and romantic fidelity.

Agate can strengthen the body and the body's connection to the earth. It also increases energy. Agate enhances healing of all kinds by bringing the elements of the healee into harmony. Physically, agate is particularly helpful with tooth and gum issues, stomach problems, physical endurance, insomnia.

I feel that spirits can take things and move them to another location. It might even be possible that spirits can move items from one room to another or even across a greater distance such as from house to house..

Ive never heard of marbles being involved in a haunting, but I have heard that it's common practice to toss a handful of marbles into the vault of a mausoleum so the casket will slide in easily and won't scrape across the bottom of the vault . . .

I used to collect and play with marbles. But that was a long time ago. Somewhere along the line, I lost my marbles. I never did figure out what happened to them.
